Title: zip drive vs flash drive
Post by: hairaplenty on April 22, 2020, 12:01 AM
My character found a very incriminating video on a zip drive. Or, flash drive?

Is your story set in 1998? If so, then zip drive. :)

Otherwise flash drive, thumb drive, USB stick or a host of other names. Flash drive is probably the most common.

I agree with David. It's hard to keep up with all the name changes. though. Technology moves so fast.  :star2
